Sainsbury's challenged bloggers to come up with some tasty cookies to celebrate Red Nose Day, and never one to turn down a biscuit, we thought we'd have a go.
I used my fail-safe biscuit recipe which is by Rachel Allen. Simple and quick to make, it produces lovely crisp, crumbly biscuits, which unlike a lot of homemade cookies will stay fresh in a tin for a few days - if they are not devoured before then. As we have a dairy allergy in da house, I substitute butter for vegetable margarine.
We then got busy with some ready-made coloured icing, rolling and cutting shapes to make our faces. It's a great product to use - like edible play-doh. The features were stuck on using a little icing sugar and water paste and voila, here are our fangtastic cookies.
They would be perfect for a bake sale, to take to school or work to raise funds for Comic Relief on 15th March. Or...
...Well, you could just eat them yourself!
While we're on the subject of Comic Relief, I'd love you to check out my Couch Coins Challenge and see if you can join in. Every penny counts, so have a root around down the back of your sofa and see what you can find.
